Qualifying through the back door
Rachel Rouse explains why, for many students, qualifying as a solicitor the ILEX way is the most cost-effective route
Having problems getting a training contract? Want a career as a lawyer without getting into debt?

Training as a legal executive in the first instance means that you can study and work at the same time, and you gain valuable experience before you qualify as a solicitor.
